be smart stay in school

see spot see spot run, wow mom i can read
yes but you must go to school to get all you need
at home i can teach you how to tie your shoes
but they can teach you why one and one makes two

back then getting an education was so clear 
and we didn't bother to question why 
as we learned the different between hear and here 
and of course how to multiply

but now it seems school is not what we pictured
no more recess where we run and laugh
they have brought in American literature
a when will i use all this math

then you must combind all you know and more
just to try and get a deceit S.A.T. score
which they say is based solely on your knowledge
and it's very important when choosing a college

this is why we must focus on our priority's
in order to get into a good university
and in these times you need a college degree
that's the only way to make it in today's society

you'll have plenty of time to have fun 
so don't be anybody fool
it time you start looking out for number one 
be smart ! stay in school
